Megow Wood Refrigerator (Reefer) Car - Hunter Packing Co. with Trucks, HO, Q4

Multimedia Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

$44   

Rare Megow kit from the 1930s. This one kit, the Hunter Packing car, had a unique paint job from the other reefers that Megow issued. The roof and sides should all be painted aluminum. Kit features high quality embossed thick cardstock sides with crisp printing, wood and metal stock as needed, embossed material for car ends and detail parts, a paper envelope with truck kits and many metal details, full instructions/plans, factory tube of glue (unopened) and paint cardboard tube but no paint. The kit has never been started. Inventoried with all parts and instructions. Fred Megow was a famous pioneer in the model aircraft field from the late 1920s and a very early manufacture for HO scale trains in the 1930s. His product lines of semi-prefabricated, solid and stick and tissue kits won him national and extensive world wide distribution - possibly the first modern model manufacture to achieve this. His fascinating story involves trying novel and untested marketing ideas in the Great Depression, followed my explosive world-wide growth. Mr. Megow was a true pioneer in the early days of modeling and a leader in the low price field so that every boy could afford a kit during those difficult times. Megow also produced scale operating train and trackside kits, ship models (large and small) and automotive subjects. Megow's catalogs claim that they were pioneers in HO scale, and there is documentation to support this fact. Megow's early HO train kits served not only to promote this now-popular scale nationally, but were among the very first train kits. Model train kits were responsible for the explosion in model railroad popularity in the late 1930s - please see the article in this website about these kits.
